Holiday Activity Fund 2021

For the past 2 years, Edsential have taken a leading role in the coordination of the Holiday Activity Fund (HAF). In 2020, we delivered the largest of the pilot programmes to date, covering 3 North West Local Authorities (Cheshire West and Chester, Wirral and Halton). See below for just some of the impact of Edsential’s HAF2020.

The Department for Work and Pensions have confirmed that for 2021, funding will be made available to extend the Holiday Activity Fund (HAF) programme across the whole of England.
